of the storm, dodged a bullet is what she said to us this morning. no lives lost and what seems to be only minimal damage, obviously as you can see from here, some flooding. the main road was flooded for a couple miles because of a reverse storm surge. while the threat is over in north carolina, they are boarding up in new york, especially on long island. the eastern tip of it, officials in east hampton and other parts of long island are warning beach-goers that waves could reach as high as ten feet. so they say it is best to stay away from the water until the storm passes. in massachusetts, people are also getting prepared as earl approaches. while it's expected to remain off shore, it could still bring heavy rain, high winds and coastal flooding. forecasters have reduced the hurricane warning area for parts of the state. our coverage of hurricane earl continues with brianna keilar, live in ocean city, maryland. reynolds wolf tracking the laftest on the storm. brianna, you are at ocean city. we have been watching and talking to you since early this morning. i'm -- there you are. there is
